Arkansas native David Gordon Green directs "Pineapple Express," the latest from the Judd Apatow crowd. It opens on Wednesday. "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" makes the rounds at the big theaters while Matt Smith's Market Street Cinema
gets "Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson."
I've been a bit occupied on other stuff, but last week brough "Swing Vote" and a few international indies to Little Rock. "The Dark Knight" continues to dominate the box office.
August is usually a bleak film month. The rest of the calendar doesn't look all that interesting, although I'm excited for "Tropic Thunder" starring Robert Downey Jr., Jack Black and Ben Stiller, "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" from Woody Allen and "Elegy," an adaptation of Philip Roth's novel "The Dying Animal" starring Penelope Cruz and Ben Kingsley.
I'll be on and off the blog for the next few weeks. Regular content will pick back up after Labor Day. If I'm not here, you can probably catch me over at InContention.com
talking about the Oscar race.
